Panerai Luminor Due TuttoOro
For the first time Panerai offers a watch with a gold case and bracelet
Panerai is a trusted companion of explorers setting out for territories few dare to pursue, from the desolate reaches of the North Pole to forbidding dives hundreds of meters below the surface of the sea and expeditions to the distant abyss of outer space. The brand remains unwavering in its focus on creating instruments that are dependable in treacherous conditions and continues to invent novel solutions to enhance their performance. But Panerai also challenges itself to push limits and defy expectations in the realm of design codes. With the launch of the Panerai Luminor Due TuttoOro collection, Panerai reveals its first watches featuring gold bracelets.
Luminor Due TuttoOro imbues one of the most elegant watches in the Panerai portfolio with a greater aura of luxury. Slim contours and a tailored, uncomplicated style distinguish Luminor Due and allow it to transition from the most casual occasions to formal wear and complement wearers of any gender. The 38mm case and bracelet are forged from Panerai Goldtech™, incorporating high copper content and platinum. Panerai Goldtech™ is a material that is integral to the Panerai identity. Copper contributes to the deep, red tone of the metal, while the platinum content ensures the color will remain radiant and true.
The legacy of the brand’s renowned crown protection device contributes to the bracelet’s design. Each link takes the profile of the iconic mechanism and applications of adjacent polished and brushed finishes giving it added dimension. While the rectangular segment of each link has a polished finish, the rounded areas display a brushed surface.
The Luminor Due TuttoOro features a sun-brushed sandwich dial, a subtly textured surface that moves light along its expanse with the barest motion, and displays minutes, hours, small seconds and the date. It is available in two colors, white and deep, marine blue; the latter will be sold in Panerai boutiques exclusively.
Automatic calibre P.900 powers the Panerai Luminor Due TuttoOro. Measuring only 4.2mm thick, it is the first Panerai movement of its size to combine the date function and a three-day power reserve.
Panerai Luminor Due TuttoOro is water-resistant to three bar (about 30 meters) and includes a tool to allow interchangeability of the bracelet.
Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and subsequently school of watch-making, for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy and its specialist diving corps in particular with precision instruments.
The designs developed by Panerai in that time, including the Luminor and Radiomir, were covered by the Military Secrets Act for many years and were launched on the international market only after the brand was acquired by the Richemont Group in 1997.
Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchâtel manufacture. The latter are a seamless melding of Italian design flair and history with Swiss horological expertise. Panerai watches are sold across the world through an exclusive network of distributors and Panerai boutiques.
